“The state armament program envisages adaptation of modern aircrafts and purchase of fighters MiG-35,” Mikhail Pogosyan said, adding that “I hope that talks to conclude specific contracts with the Defense Ministry will be held in the near future.”
The United Aircraft Corporation chief recalled that the Defense Ministry would supply a second batch of ship-based fighters MiG-29K this year. “In 2015 we will deliver a third batch of warplanes,” Pogosyan said.
A contract for delivery of multifunctional fighters 4++ MiG-35S is planned after 2016. Around 100 warplanes MiG-35S will be produced in the near future.
